On this site you will find the manuscripts that record Charles Darwin's work as a practicing scientist. Whether you are a student or a researcher, our goal is to offer you digital access to the primary evidence for the birth and maturation of Darwin's attempts to explore and explain the natural world. In these documents, you can trace the development of Darwin as a thinker and you will meet Darwin as a keen-eyed collector, an inspired observer, and a determined experimenter. You will also find Darwin the shrewd reader, attuned to his cultural context, and the strategic writer, ever reconsidering and revising.

A list of Print-on-demand publishers, self-publishing/”Vanity presses” and other non-traditional publishers for librarians and authors. By Lara Seven Phillips, Pacific Collection Librarian, University of the South Pacific*, Suva, Fiji. This massive list of non-traditional book publishers has three main audiences: 1) authors (whether scholarly/tenure track academics or novelists) who don’t want to publish with a disreputable publisher who will not edit or market their work 2) librarians who don’t want to accidentally buy public domain reprints masquerading as new titles/editions or bogus “reference” works compiled from Wikipedia or free statistical sources 3) Bookbuyers who want to know if the appealing title they see listed on Amazon was traditionally published and edited, or was made available via “print on demand” (POD) services. We’ll start with publishers that target authors. Scholarly Open Access Scholarly Open Access

Saturday was a terrific day at EdCampMe. It was a great chance to hang with some friends and chat about meaningful ways to educate children. One of the questions that came up in a session I was in is something that I get asked a lot. "How do I manage my Google Docs with so many documents coming in from so many students?" Teachers love how easy it is to collaborate with their students, not having to worry about losing the file and all the other bonuses that using Docs brings, but tracking down assignments can be a nightmare.
